My insulin has, technically, expired this week, and as we all know, I don’t want to pull what I did a month ago and use expired insulin for 2 months and watch my health deteriorate because I was living on credit cards and too fucking poor to live adequately.
But I wanted to wait just a little bit longer because…
My health insurance card arrived in the mail today.
Here’s what I *was* paying out of pocket vs. what I will now be paying out of pocket each month:
Lantus – THEN: 76.70 NOW: $30.00
Novolog – THEN: $83.27 now: $30.00
Testing strips – THEN: $60 NOW: $20
Syringes – THEN: $26.50 NOW: $10
Total per-month cost (this is just drugs that keep me alive, not the bazillion doctor’s visits I have a year):
The best part?
THIS INSURANCE IS FREE AND PAID 100% BY THE COMPANY.
Fucking CHRISTMAS I’M TELLING YOU.
Now I need to see how much they’ll pay for monitors and pumps… Muwahaha aha haa aaa.
